We take the safety of our residents very seriously. In order to do this, we have a robust policy in place to ensure our properties are compliant. The six main areas of compliance monitored by CCHA are: gas, fire, asbestos, water, electricity and radon gas.

Gas Safety

CCHA complies with the Gas Safety Regulations 1998. We carry out a check of all gas installations on an annual basis.

As of 31st March 2019, 99.77% of our properties had a valid Gas Certificate. Only two properties did not have a valid Gas Certificate; these were subject to court action and have now had the services complete.

99.8% of Gas Certificates were completed within the 12 month statutory period.

Water

CCHA carries out Water Risk Assessments to our properties which require an assessment, in line with the applicable legislation. These tests are carried out to ensure the risk of Legionella is mitigated.

100% of our properties which require a Water Risk Assessment have a valid assessment in place.

Electric

In line with the required regulations, CCHA carries out an electrical safety test to all properties every five years. Electrical safety tests are also carried out when a property becomes vacant.

Fire

To ensure CCHA complies with all applicable fire safety regulations, Fire Risk Assessments are carried out on all properties which are part of a block.

Post Grenfell, CCHA has begun work on assessing the evacuation procedures for all of its communal blocks. In addition to this we have carried out a tender exercise to ensure that all works related to Fire Risk Assessments are completed as recommended.
